Lensing "Stranger Things," "Mrs. Maisel," "Mozart in the Jungle"
One DP just earned an Emmy nomination for the second consecutive year in recognition of his work on Stranger Things (Netflix). Another garnered his first career Emmy nod on the strength of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon). And a third DP also has the distinction of having just attained his second...

Review: Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman"
In 1979, a man named Ron Stallworth who was the first African-American police officer and detective in the Colorado Springs Police Department also became a card-carrying member of the Ku Klux Klan and the leader of the local chapter. He would send a white co-worker to play him for in-person...

Review: Director Marc Forster's "Christopher Robin"
Oh, bother. The misfortune of "Christopher Robin" is not only that it comes a year after "Goodbye Christopher Robin," an earnest if sentimental tale about Winnie-the-Pooh author A.A. Milne and his son, Christopher Robin Milne, but that it arrives a few months after the screwball radiance of "...

Review: Director Christopher McQuarrie's "Mission: Impossible - Fallout"
And so, fellow moviegoers: Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what Tom Cruise can — and will — do for you. The answer is anything. The man will do anything to entertain you. At age 56, when the rest of us are making chiropractor appointments and upping our corrective lenses, Cruise will...

Review: Antoine Fuqua Directs Denzel Washington In "The Equalizer 2"
You won't usually find Denzel Washington in a movie sequel. He just doesn't do them. Something about not wanting to repeat himself. So there must be something special indeed for him to break his own rule for "The Equalizer 2." Fans of the first film will instantly know why Washington is drawn to...

Review: Director Carlos Lopez Estrada Debuts With "Blindspotting"
"Blindspotting," the directorial debut of Carlos Lopez Estrada, stalks the streets of Oakland with a heightened, spoken-word flow, passionately freestyling on race, police brutality and gentrification through a searing story about two friends: one black, one white. Though stylistically scattershot...

Review: Rawson Marshall Thurber Directs The Rock In "Skyscraper"
I like to imagine what King Kong, as a popcorn-chomping moviegoer, might make of "Skyscraper," the latest summer actioner staring Dwayne Johnson. Would he, watching a goliath ascend the exterior of a high-rise with helicopters and klieg lights swirling, woundedly mumble, "Hey, that's my gig." But...

Review: Gus Van Sant's "Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot"
Macabre is a word often associated with the late cartoonist John Callahan. He's the man who in his widely published cartoons, drawn in his signature squiggly style, poked fun at lesbians, Chinese people, the handicapped, women, Oprah, Alzheimer's patients, chiropractors and even sexual harassment...

Review: Director Peyton Reed's "Ant-Man and The Wasp"
Not since Animal against the advice of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker ingested Insta-Growth pills has a movie had as much fun with scale as "Ant-Man and The Wasp." Among the greatest threats to the shape-shifting heroes of the Marvel sequel are windshield wipers, salt shakers and seagulls. This is...

Review: Director Boots Riley's "Sorry to Bother You"
Writer and director Boots Riley's crackling first film "Sorry to Bother You " may just be the craziest movie of the year. Fierce, provocative and bold, it's a challenging social statement about race and capitalism wrapped in a colorful, magical realist coating that will leave your head spinning. It...
